The PERMATA Children’s Hospital project was inspired by the YABg. Datin Paduka Seri Rosmah Mansor, the wife of the Prime Minister of Malaysia. She had visited many children’s hospitals all over the world and after returning from one such visit, she mentioned her wish to see a children’s hospital in Malaysia to the former UKM Vice Chancellor, Professor Tan Sri Dato Seri Sharifah Hapsah Syed Hasan Shahabudin.

The project was approved by the cabinet in 2010 under a private financing initiative (PFI). After a stringent assessment of tender submission from 6 companies, the project was awarded to Zecon Bhd. The construction cost for the 250-bedded hospital is RM606 million. The project will be a build-lease-maintain-transfer (BLMT) approach with a 30-year concession period. The concession agreement was signed between Zecon Bhd and the Ministry of Education on the 22nd August 2013 and the ground breaking ceremony was performed by the YAB Prime Minister of Malaysia on the 23rd of August 2013. The construction period will be between 2014-2017.

The hospital has been named the Hospita Kanak-kanak PERMATA (HKK PERMATA) or the UKM PERMATA Children’s Hospital as recognition for Datin Paduka Seri Rosmah Mansor who is the patron for the PERMATA programme under the Prime Minister’s Department.
